Rebate & Weatherization Program Evaluation Audit Process
The PEAP project evaluated AHFC’s weatherization and rebate programs to determine outcomes and develop a feedback mechanism to improve each program. Evaluation topics will include energy efficiency, affordability, safety, and durability outcomes by region, building type, income level, and program. Energy savings and CO2 reduction for each program will be summarized and compared by square foot, dollars invested, retrofit option, and compared to other areas in Alaska, the US, and internationally. Further, through this project CCHRC staff will be able evaluate a host of building energy retrofit options to identify the value of energy efficiency retrofits and recommend the most effective ways of tapping into the energy efficiency resource.
